Workers' compensation claims are increased by lifting mishaps

Lifting heavy objects at work in Florida and elsewhere accounts for one of the largest causes of back injuries among workers each year. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that one in five of all work injuries are back injuries. Each work injury raises the possibility that a workers' compensation claim will be filed by the injured worker should he/she need medical treatment, medications or other doctor and hospital services.

Wrong-way drivers often cause fatal motor vehicle accidents

Wrong-way drivers pose a serious threat to individuals traveling the roadways. They put themselves, their passengers and travelers in other vehicles at risk of being involved in motor vehicle accidents that could easily lead to serious injuries. Unfortunately, these accidents happen relatively often, and the outcomes have a tendency to be tragic.

Distracted driving dangers are right before your eyes

There is no question that we live in an age of technological miracles. Considering that only a couple of generations ago, the common form of transportation was a horse-drawn carriage, the phenomenal advances in that industry are nothing short of awe-inspiring.

Personal injury claims and Florida's theme parks

Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens, among others, provide hours and days of fun for tourists and Florida residents alike. While thousands of people visit these parks each year without incident, injuries do occur, and some of them can be serious. If you suffered injuries at one of the state's theme parks, you may be able to pursue restitution through the filing of a personal injury claim.

When safety concerns lead to workers' compensation claims

Florida employers are required to provide their workers with safe environments. This often means providing safety equipment and training. When an employer fails to adhere to regulations set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, along with state agencies, a surge in workers' compensation claims may be cause for alarm.

Workers' compensation news: 3 dead after gin pole collapse

Someone has to erect, repair and maintain those huge communication towers that dot the Florida landscape. Many of them reach 100 feet tall, and climbing them can be a challenge, not to mention a safety nightmare. Even so, men and women do it every day expecting that their employers will provide them with the safest equipment possible. Unfortunately, accidents can still happen, and when they do, victims and their families may find themselves seeking workers' compensation benefits to cover their financial losses.
